Shohei Ohtani suffers second loss after giving up five runs to Astros

Shohei Ohtani gave up five runs over six innings and was tagged with his second loss Friday as the Los Angeles Angels were defeated 6-2 by the Houston Astros.

Yordan Alvarez blasted a two-run homer in the first inning off Ohtani (5-2), who regrouped in the next two innings but struggled again after the fourth at Minute Maid Park. He allowed nine hits and a walk while striking out six.

Ohtani, who went 0-for-4 at the plate batting leadoff for the first time this year, escaped a bases-loaded jam in the fourth but allowed a walk and single with two outs in the fifth before Alex Bregman singled in the Astros’ third run.
